Death comes to us all. When he came to Mort, he offered him a job.
After being assured that being dead was not compulsory, Mort accepted. However, he soon found that romantic longings did not mix easily with the responsibilities of being Death's apprentice.
Terry Pratchett's hilarious fourth Discworld novel established once and for all that Death really is a laughing matter...
The first Discworld novel, The Colour of Magic , was published in 1983, and the series is still going strong almost three decades later. Four Discworld novels - Hogfather , Going Postal , The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic - have been adapted for television, with more to follow. His books have sold approximately 85 million copies worldwide (but who's counting?), and been translated into forty languages.
In 2007, Terry Pratchett was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's Disease. He died in 2015.
